Why advertise with Beartown Voice

From Katy...

Welcome to the summer edition of Beartown Voice. This edition covers August and September. As I write this we are coming to the end of the heatwave. I have really enjoyed the sunshine; however, I realise it’s not ideal for everybody. I do hope we have some good weather in August as we are going to Pembroke. Under normal circumstances we would be going to Spain or France, and some sunshine would be great, but I am not complaining. I am just grateful to be spending some quality time with our family and friends, and enjoying a change of scenery.

In this month’s edition we have added a crossword to the magazine! I love feedback and developing Beartown Voice with you in mind is important to me. Michelle messaged me through our Facebook page suggesting we include a crossword, which I thought was a great idea. You will find it on page 39 and I hope you enjoy it.

Also in this edition, Mark Edwardson explores Congleton at a different time of day, and his article has made me contemplate the things around me I don’t normally see as life rushes by. I would also like to thank Mia Ross for her contribution about the power of art and creativity, plus thank you to all our other writers for making Beartown Voice unique and part of your wonderful town.

I hope you have a lovely summer whatever your plans are, and I will see you on the other side!
